ASL Level Placement Exam
Every ASL student with prior knowledge of ASL or transferred ASL credits will be required to schedule the ASL Level Placement Exam. Because of the unique nature of our curriculum, only select course work can be considered for transfer credits.
New students should meet with an AoS Advisor to discuss your plan. Transfer students and any students who have completed at least ASL 3 with at least 30 credits should request a Department Advising appointment with Dr. Anderson.
